The 2021 Chardonnay Belle Côte is a wine of tremendous density and power. Orchard fruit, dried pear, graphite, anise and dried flowers infuse the 2021 with tremendous flavor complexity. Readers will find an intensely mineral, savory Chardonnay with the fruit pushed into the background. Belle Côte is the original Chardonnay planting at Peter Michael.

Not my favorite style of Chardonnay but not so oaky that I can’t drink it without food. Also balanced with just enough acid to hide the more overt vanilla notes. Something ‘fresh’ about it as well…. Long petrol finish…
